2018 MLB Draft Discussion

That’s fine. Google and read the right scouting report on all these guys and eventually you’ll find one saying the will be MLB All Stars. 

But your point was that future utility guy is a worthwhile outcome for a second pick.  Do you know anyone who would adopt that as a draft strategy?  If it were a beauty contest, that's the prize for Miss Congeniality.

Yeah, because those are never wrong.

No, but when the consensus is "this is a glove-first slap-hitter that didn't hit the ball with any authority in college" then I pay attention to that. If he suddenly develops into a doubles hitter, I'll be thrilled, and so will the Orioles. But nothing in his tape suggests that power surge is coming as he moves to the minors.

He hit 2 Home Runs at 28. Slugging percentage around .350 until he is 32.  Then one season he comes back all jacked up and hits 20 home runs at 34.  And you don't think he was on steroids?

So I guess the year Wade Boggs went from 8 homers to 24 and then back down to 5, he must have been juicing.  Or the year that Lou Gehrig went from 16 homers to 47, he must have been juicing.  

Wait, wait, wait...I know, I know.  The year Davey Johnson went from 5 homers to 43 homers, he HAD to have been on steroids.

It never amazes me how naive people are, lol.

Hey @Can_of_corn the Indians grabbed my dude Sandlin. I was early 3rd round on him and they obviously were even higher.

Nice, not that they pi keep him.  You know what I mean.

Wow, is everyone that down on these picks? 

Sorta.  

Some feelings that they stretched on the 11th pick, but there are some things to like about him.  Most seem to be down on the 37th pick.

Generally? I would say there's somewhere between a "Well, I like the kid but I wouldn't have taken him there over some of the other guys" and a "This guy's going to wind up as a reliever lol the O's are a joke" sentiment on Rodriguez. It's nearly consensus on Grenier.

Is Mike Siana related to the wide receiver of the same name who played for the Colts in the late 70s?

Have you ever left Essex? 

Just curious.

The Bay Area was steroids central (Balco). Why don’t you actually read up on what Canseco and others  said.

Do you know professional ballplayers? Talk with them and get back with me.

    • Walter Football doesn’t have Queen ranked as an ILB.  What’s up with that?  Other services have Harrison 3rd behind Queen and Murray.  I do like Brooks and Logan Wilson.  Point being, you can get an impact MLB later if a stud drops unexpectedly to 28.  San Fran got Greenlaw in the third last season and he was great for them.
    • Harrison is the 5th ranked MLB according to Walter Football. He's projected by them to be a 3-5 round guy. I would think he's likely a reach in the 3rd much less the 2nd. I'd be ok drafting him for WIL in the 4th, but he's not the stud MLB that I think we need. Conversely, I think Braun or Jordan Brooks would be a better 2nd LB taken by the Ravens. And I think they need 2 guys! I also like Anferee Jennings at the WIL.          
    • I played up to when I was 16.  Couldn’t hit a lick but caught everything hit closes to me.   Turned into a pitcher and could throw the ball up into the eighties at 16.   The coach  I had was more interested in getting to the bar after the game so everything I learned was on my own.  My junior year in high school my buddies talked me into playing lacrosse where i dislocated my right shoulder and could never throw a ball over 50 mph after that. 
    • Well, I got it and started a season.  And Alex Cobb had to LEAVE THE FIRST GAME IN THE SECOND INNING WITH A LEG INJURY.  
    • Never played organized sports.  In my youth, Dad was an alcoholic and Mom did anything she could to keep the family together.  I would just go off by myself with a piece of wood and imitate O's games.  I had every batting stance from each everyday player down to a tee.  And just like "Stankee Classics", the O's won every time. Fortunately, Dad checked himself into AA when I was 14 (?), and never had another drink for the remaining 25 years of his life.  And, it is passed down.  The other 5 siblings are drinkers, but only 2 are full blown alchies.  I haven't had anything in 10+ years and don't miss it. And probably that's why:
    • Are we related?  
    • After I tore one of mine, before it was fixed, I went to a Virginia Tech football game. Big play happened, everyone jumps up, I land slightly awkardly and *bam*.  Shooting pain in my knee.  Agony.  That also happened after tear #2, when my regular doc was on reserve duty, and backup doc said "I don't think you really tore anything, just rest for a week or two and go back to playing soccer." Like a minute into my first game back, same thing, shooting pain in the knee.  Went back to the backup doc, got an MRI, and whatta you know, he said it was the cleanest ACL tear he'd ever seen.
